Background:

I debated at H. H. Dow High School and I am now debating at the University of Michigan.

I read soft left affs and went for neolib/security Ks.

Thoughts on the topic:

Internal link evidence comparison usually decides alliance DA debates.

Condition CP is very effective.

2AC/block practices:

Contextualize case arguments to the 1AC, because evidence itself is often too vague.

Do evidence comparison beyond "they're wrong because our author disagrees."

"Permutation is intrinsic/severance" requires substantial explanation.

The ideal 2NR/2AR in front of me:

Spend the first ~15 seconds explaining how I should vote.

Turn your argument into a narrative.

I can definitely do fast, but I prefer relatively slow.

Kritikal Affs:

These rounds are difficult for everyone involved because it seems like every judge, even the 50/50 ones, have drastically different views on particular arguments.

Overall, I don't have any substantial predispositions on framework, except that I'm sympathetic to arguments about small schools, on both aff and neg.

I have sparse experience with K v K rounds, but I wouldn't feel lost in one.

Kritiks:

Clash rounds come down to framework 99% of the time.

Describe to me the threshold for voting aff and neg.

The evidence says whatever you tell me it says.

Counterplans:

Don't start with 'the counterplan solves 100% of the aff and avoids the net benefit' and follow up with no explanation.

If your counterplan doesn't 'cheat' then it's probably not good enough.

I do not kick a counterplan for you.

Theory:

I'm sympathetic to aff theory, especially on counterplans.

Incomprehensible two second theory shells are not voters.
